The Singapore government’s Centre for Liveable Cities (CLC) and the Danish Architecture Centre (DAC) last week signed an agreement to continue their partnership to collaborate towards building sustainable and liveable cities, reports Eco-business.com.

The agreement was signed at the World Cities Summit, which was held from June 1-4 in Singapore. According to a press release from the summit, the collaboration aims “to bring together the best ideas and practices that support efforts in building liveable cities that are dynamic, vibrant, cohesive and sustainable”.

The CLC was set up in 2008 by two Singaporean ministries (national development and environment and water resources) while the DAC is a public-private partnership between Realdania and the Danish government.

Small but world-leading
Co-operation to date between the entities has comprised knowledge-sharing and site visits to projects of interest.

CLC executive director Khoo Teng Chye is optimistic about the continued co-operation. “After the successful exchange programme for Singaporean and Danish directors last year, we are pleased to work with DAC on the second edition this year,” he told Eco-business.com.

Fleming Borreskov, the chairman of DAC, sees the interests of his organisation and CLC as being aligned.

“Denmark and Singapore are two small countries, but they are both absolutely world-leading in terms of making cities liveable and more sustainable and a great inspiration for cities around the world,” he explained to Eco-business.com.
